German Bookings to Greece Show 10% Increase

KOS_66_TownBookings from Germany to Greek destinations have shown a 10 percent increase at present, according to the German Travel Association (DRV).

Speaking at a press conference today in Berlin — ahead of next week’s ITB 2015 expo — DRV’s president Norbert Fiebig said the German tourism market is set for further good growth this year after a solid start to summer holiday bookings, Germany’s FVW Media Group reported.

Citing data from market researcher GfK, Mr. Fiebig said that bookings for summer 2015 holidays in German travel agencies have increased by some five percent as of end-January.

According to FVW’s report, trends for different destinations vary widely. Egypt is selling strongly with a 40 percent increase at present, Greece (+10 percent), Majorca (+4 percent) and cruises are also all selling well. In contrast, bookings are down for the Canary Islands, Turkey, domestic holidays in Germany and overland destinations in neighbouring countries.

The DRV expects the German tourism market to hit new record levels. Last year, tour operators increased their combined revenues by nearly 4 percent to 26.3 billion euros.
